  • I believe they make an Oral Gel for babies. Put a little on her sore it will help a little.

  • Yes... It might be hand foot and mouth (not serious). I would take her... but I am a little doctor happy.

  • I agree, it sounds like it may be hand foot and mouth... it causes blister in the mouth, and the soles of the hands and feet and can cause high fever. If she is acting sick I would bring her in... otherwise just keep an eye on her.

  • My oldest daughter had this happen when she was 8 months old, her daddy had a fever blister and kissed her and she caught the virus from him. It is very hard on a baby that young, my daughter couldn't drink from a bottle for probably a month and she never took a pacifier again after that. As long as she doesn't have a fever and doesn't have any problems feeding, I wouldn't worry much about it. If she starts acting cranky, starts getting a fever or acts like she is in pain, definitely take her in. Hope she gets feeling better.
